    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at One Chicago.

    Interview

    The interview was basic, with a phone interview and then three meetings face to face. They go over the company, but it was a door to door business which I didn't know coming into it. Overall, everyone seemed friendly and close like family.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at One Chicago (Des Plaines, IL).

    Interview

    It is not at all complicated. The interviewer knows exactly what he wants and it sometimes can be deceptive if you fail to understand at the first instance or if you don't ask questions. The questions are basic common HR questions.

    You're called for an interview and explained what the company does (not what you will be doing). If you pass, which you generally do with such kinds of interviews, you are called for a second interview. The second interview is for them to see if you can work for them. They send you to the field - their door-to-door sales campaign. I was asked to go for 6 hours. I am not going.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at One Chicago (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Short. The interviewer didn't read my resume before the interview. Didn't explain that the position I was interviewing for was actually direct sales. He kept saying that the company was responsible for clients's customer growth. Didn't say how. I kept asking. He kept saying marketing. Analytics. Etc. Finally, I specifically asked how One Chicago increases and retains that growth, and he had no choice but to say (in a fancier way) door to door and inside sales. After answering this question, he offered a second interview later that day. I declined.

    I applied online. I interviewed at One Chicago.

    Interview

    The people seems nice, fun, and chummy. I was in for about 20 mins. Was asked basic first interview questions and then explained about what they do. I was immediately asked for a second interview.
    Do come in with questions for the interviewer, though..

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at One Chicago (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It started out fine and they were very welcoming. They did not do well in describing how the job works or anything like that. When I had asked how the day to day was they just said "each day is different" and tried to beat around the bush.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Plaines, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at One Chicago (Des Plaines, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    robotic, uninterested, sales pitch. After I was asked a multitude of general questions that seemingly did not pertain to the job description I spent my time by listening to a pitch that was ambiguous to their daily roles and responsibilities as a account manager. Luckily I read Glassdoor's reviews and was able to retract with observable knowledge which then led to an interest and then disinterest by the recruiter/account manager in renewable energy. Although this may be a fit for some, it was below my aptitude.

    Reasons for Declining

    I understand that this company might have great possibilities for some but this simply was not a fit for my future.

    Account Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at One Chicago (Des Plaines, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    My resume was on career builder, got contacted for an interview. The first interview was about 10-15 min, basic questions on info from my resume. Got an appointment for a second interview. The second interview was for couple hours , crash course on the company, basic marketing types, and business approach. They talked about the phases of the hiring, and ask questions to gauge your knowledge in the market. Pretty much, the whole point was to see if your personality fit their ideals and whether or not you have what it takes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at One Chicago (Des Plaines, IL).

    Interview

    There are 3-4 rounds of interviews. For the first interview I walked into the office and it seemed very informal. I was one of 3 other people being interviewed on that day. The guy brought me back into his office and asked me a few short questions about my resume, explained the position, and then told me I would hear back in a few weeks.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at One Chicago (Schaumburg, IL).

    Interview

    Guys this is a pyramid scheme. They want you to sell things door to door, and every job title - “account manager” or “customer service” blah blah is the same thing.
